The message I'm waiting for???

I don't know about you but when I open my mailbox and I see that I have lots of emails I always get the feeling that there's going to be one in there from an editor wanting to buy a story or someone wanting to publish my book. I have been known to get excited in those few seconds before I press the button only to discover that I've won £m's in an internet lottery, some bank that I've never had an account with want me to validate my details, a barrister in Africa wants to give me thousands of pounds that was left to me by some bloke who died in a plane crash etc etc etc. Why? Of the thousands of emails that I've received only 4 have been from editors wanting to buy something I've written. You'd think I'd learn but I haven't checked my emails yet tonight and...well. you never know do you.

Yes - every day I check my email several times hoping there'll be an acceptance. And just occasionally there is. I like living in eternal hope!
